When I go into ultra low carb dieting, my hair seems thinner. It actually changed when I lost 40 lbs in 4 months of low carbing. Not on meds. Normal A1c. Scared to lose more weight because of this. Have any women experienced hair changes or loss due to low carb dieting ?
Have you had you thyroid checked? Thinning hair is very common with people who have low thyroid. Also there is a relationship between diabetes and hashimoto disease/low thyroid. Being that diabetes is in your family history, I have to wonder if you may be vulnerable to low thyroid.
